Water Main Flushing
June 14, 2019
City workers are scheduled to begin flushing water mains within the City on June 17, 2019. The program is done annually as part of a scheduled preventative maintenance program to help maintain good water quality and to improve the water flow in your neighborhood.
While flushing is taking place, you may find the water slightly cloudy or water pressure in your home may decrease temporarily. These conditions are normal during water main flushing and are only temporary. If you notice any of these changes, we recommend you flush your water lines by running your outside water tap until it runs clear (usually 5-10 minutes) and the water has no noticeable taste or odor.
We regret any inconvenience this may cause you. If you have any questions, or if you experience any persistent water quality problems as a result of this maintenance program, please do not hesitate to contact City Hall at 250-423-6817.
While the City has altered water use in our operations to adhere to current water restrictions, this is required maintenance that must occur during the summer months. We thank the public for continuing to adhere to the watering restrictions that are in place, and helping us conserve water wherever possible.
Water main flushing will continue for several months.
